My Department will work closely with the Department for Transport to assess the impact on tourism of any future proposals for a national road pricing system. As outlined in the Government's White Paper "The Future of Transport: An Overview of Transport Policy until 2030" any decision about whether and when to implement such a scheme is likely to be some years away.
